After getting left at the altar, Kenzie Gifford flees to San Francisco to start her life over, determined never to love again. She's made new friends and has a good job in the office of her cousin's chocolate factory. The only thorn in her side is Dr. Micah Fisher, who insists on pursuing her despite her constant rejection. Then the Great 1906 Earthquake strikes the city, and everything changes. The devastation all around her makes Kenzie reevaluate her outlook on life - and possibly even her feelings for Micah. But then her world is rocked again when her ex-fiance appears.

I have really enjoyed this series but I don't know why but I really couldn't get into Ms. Lin narration I have heard her in other books but for this series, I really don't think that she was a match or what I think it should.

When Signe, her husband, Rune, and their three boys arrive in Minnesota from Norway to help a relative clear his land of lumber, they dream of owning their own farm and building a life in the New World.

At this rate they will never have land or a life of their own.

Would you listen to The Promise of Dawn again? Why?

Yes, because I love Ms. Snellings books and I try to buy all of them at least the historical ones when they come out.

What does Christina Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like Ms. Moore in most of all the other books that I have heard her read, but for some reason I just couldn't get though it the first time that I listened, but the more I stuck with it her voice grew on me even though she would not be my first choose.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I really don't know because I really hope that they don't make a film because some of my most beloved books have been made into movies and they are not the same. though they are good they are not the book. I might have someone pictured one way and they you might have another.
